As an artist myself, I have been informed by mentors, as well as trial and error to “not put certain colors together”, and I’ve never seen anyone use dominantly pink and orange, and make it work, but work it does, and quite well. Also as an artist, rarely does anyone’s work not only get my attention, but simply put…she paints pictures I want to look at…a lot. I won’t spoil your chance to see for yourself by posting a lot of them here, but Her site is definitely worth the clicktime.
You look at some art, and you think, “it’s pretty”, then you move on. Lets face it, how often does art make you stop, and get lost in it?
A little about Mandy from her website:
Inspired by the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt and the realism of the Renaissance. The artist also inspired by the 60’s Pop Art Culture particularly that of Andy Warhol, a style as seen in her paintings, “Dorothy” “Marilyn Monroe and” “Audrey Hepburn” and “The Great British Mini”. Derbyshire Artist Mandy is a self taught artist, and has been drawing and painting since a young age. Her art has been nurtured over the years with the encouragement of her family. Her grandfather Roy would teach her to draw little faces on a piece of paper. Her family and friends would request a drawing or painting. Mandy would never be far from a doodle or even a wall at home would become her canvas.
Her Dreamy Landscapes and Seascapes are Impressionistic with an unusual blend of expressive colour variation, taking inspiration from Monet, Turner and Van Gogh, Hockney and Matisse. Her paintings have been described by the viewer as beautifully ethereal and that of a Colourist painter. The artist is fascinated with the changing elements of light through the day, the seasons, colour and nature. Mandy’s art is all about what she perceives the colourful world to be! Her art is now collected both nationally and now Internationally and also works to commission.
Mandy develops her creations in her art studio based in Heage Derbyshire. Her latest portraits in progress not yet revealed are a blend of symbolism, reality and Surrealism. Artist Studio
